PHOENIX - Several people had to be evacuated from Sky Harbor airport Sunday morning after a popular restaurant caught fire in Terminal 4.
Sky Harbor spokesperson Tony Mure said the fire started around 10 a.m. at Chelsea's Kitchen.
Fire officials said the restaurant's ventilation hood caught fire causing visible smoke and flames. Crews said an employee used a fire extinguisher to put out the blaze.
According to the Associated Press, an estimated 30 people at Chelsea's Kitchen and a neighboring restaurant were evacuated. The airport terminal remained open.
Firefighters said Chelsea's Kitchen suffered minimal damage from the fire, and there was no damage to the eatery next door.
Mure said the fire was likely caused by grease that had accumulated in the ventilation hood.
Crews said no one was injured in the fire.
